Re: Furloughed Workers

I'm seeing this with new eyes now, I didn't realise I'd been lucky (working for a larger firm). Well I really hope you get sorted Jansman! one way or the other. That said I'll not want to be on 80% for too long myself, as we all live to our means don't we. OM Cancel stuff that's not essential to fr...
